Our Team

Todd Young, LD

I love to serve people. To listen to them, to get to know them, to truly understand who they are. I think that if you do that, a partnership is born that results in a smile that changes a persons’ entire trajectory in life.

He is married to Kathy, has three amazing kids (Makayla, Kellen, and Kade) and lives on a hobby farm just outside of Eugene.

Todd Weil, DMD

Dr Todd Weil a denturist in Salem Oregon
I love giving someone the confidence to smile again. It makes my job as a dentist very rewarding and motivating.

Born and raised in Beaverton, Oregon Dr. Todd Weil attended Oregon State University earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Weil realized he wanted to be involved in a profession that could directly affect people’s lives, so he moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he enrolled at Midwestern University and earned his degree in Dentistry. After working in Phoenix, Dr. Weil, his wife Susan and their young son decided they wanted to get back to their roots. They’re thrilled to be back in Oregon working with Natural Dentures. Outside of work, Dr. Weil spends time with his family hiking, running, swimming and exploring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Nels Hvass, LD

Denturism allows me to work hand in hand with the patient to give them back something that is really important to them, and that’s their smile.

Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, Nels graduated from Churchill High School, then attended Oregon State University for two years before completing his Denturist education at George Brown City College in Toronto, Canada.

Together they are actively involved in their Church singing, playing the guitar and helping with the youth group and children’s classes. They also love to hike, bike, camp, fish, play soccer, raise chickens and garden. Nels is now serves on the Oregon Board of Denture Technology and is the current President of the Oregon State Denturist Association. He loves the profession of Denturism, as it allows him to work hand in hand with the patient to give them back something that is really important to them, and that’s their smile.

Zach Rose, LD

Meeting new people, restoring their smile and making them laugh is the favorite part of my profession.

Born and raised in Eugene, Zach attended Willamette and Churchill High School. He was a three-sport athlete growing up with his biggest passion being football. Following high school, he followed his love for the sport and has coached football in the high school ranks since. Zach has been with Natural Dentures for 8 years, after working in the lab for 4 years, Zach realized he wanted to work with patients directly, so he attended the American Denturist School and received his diploma becoming a Denturist. He is a member of the Oregon State Denturist Association board and he loves being a Denturist as it allows him work with patients to improve their smile. This January, Zach, married his beautiful wife, Joanna. They hope to have little ones running around in the near future, although, their dog Petey keeps he and his wife quite busy.

Andy Aguilar, LD

I love seeing the smile on people’s face when they see their new smile for the first time.

Andy was born in Los Angeles and raised in Springfield Oregon where he attended Springfield High School. Andy is an seasoned drummer and played in his church choir for 20 years, keeping the music alive through the beats, his contagious laugh, and genuine smile. In Andy’s free time you will catch him traveling or doing projects around his home. He also likes playing basketball, and he loves hanging out with his family and friends.

Andy has worked for Natural Dentures for 8 years. Two years in, he was promoted to Lab Manager. At that time, Andy realized that his true desire was to be with the patients, creating their smiles from start to finish, and enjoying the process with them – no longer just working behind the scenes. In July 2015, Andy married his wife, Sarai, and they relocated to Salem so he could pursue his passion of becoming a full time Licensed Denturist.

Andy loves paying attention to the details, learning about his patients, and helping to craft a smile that fits each person’s personality. His strength lies in his ability to create lasting relationships that are based on trust and excellent craftsmanship. He looks forward to meeting you and being part of your journey.
